Nine’s Head of Netball, Keeley Devery, said: “Having been both a player and a broadcaster, I can say with absolute certainty that fans will love this supercharged broadcast of netball. We’ve stayed true to the hard-core fans as well as opening the door for people who just like to watch hard and fast athletes at the top of their game – going point-for-point over 60 heart-stopping minutes.”

 

Former Australian captain and 9GEM commentator Liz Ellis said: “It’s so exciting to see our sport step up another level. With Nine’s support, and having netball on television every Saturday night, it is an impressive recognition of the game. I can’t wait to get behind the microphone and call the action.”
